Helped by the good ground when drawing nicely clear at Chepstow (2m3f, good) and only weakened out of the picture late on when favourite to follow up at Market Rasen (2m4f); that was after an 11lb rise and he might be on a tough mark now; recently left Tom Lacey for £15,500.

Bounced back to form with a course success a fortnight ago; a while since he's shown form at this sort of trip but soft ground may help bring his stamina in to play and there's nothing wrong with a 7lb rise,.

Twice pulled out of intended targets here because of unsuitable ground (good to soft/good) in January following a fair third over C&D (soft) the previous month; down to a viable mark and interesting to see if there is market support for him.

Easily beat Hungry Tiger by 25l over C&D (good to soft) last month and is now 4-19 over hurdles; seemed to benefit from very patient ride in that strongly run contest, though, and subsequent 11lb higher up the weights asks quite a lot of him.
